I very rarely get any spam in my email. But the last 2 days I'm being bombarded with emails all are from different address's. They have is no subject title and all just say "QUIT" in the message. I have run scans with Ad_Aware, and my AVG Anti-virus scans every day, neither have found anything. They are coming in about every 3 minutes, so far today alone I have deleted over 200. I am using Incredimail for my email.
I would appreciate any help and suggestions to stop garbage.

Here is a sample

From: [email protected]
Date: 06/04/2010 3:37:42 PM
To: undisclosed-recipients:,

Who is your email provider? Maybe their spam filter has stopped working..its the only thing that stops all of us from getting that kind of spam.

The from field can be forged, if it is not, then the email is being sent from the servers for this site, which may have been hacked to serve spam to the world.

you might be able to set a spam filter to block any email from [email protected], if most of them are from this address.

Attempt to find the sender from the internet headers. The last line Receving From: will show the originator ip address.

Afterwords, contact the isp of the originator ip address and send some samples of the spam messages, but I would not hold my breath on the spam stopping.

Thanks for your response. I have checked the IP Address's on several they are all different I don't have a single one the same. Maybe I should contact Telus my service provider.

The spammers could be using a proxy network to send the spam, or a bot net.

You can always try contacting your email provider to see if they can add acl rules to block the spam.
